Thank you so much again. I was uncertain on the issue my car had, aaron responded quickly, showed up sooner than I was told, figured out the problem quick, and had my car on the road again, was friendly knowledgeable and respectful. Would recommend.

All I needed was a tow but my driver Luis was incredible. He went above and beyond and got my car to start (I had been trying for a week).

Yesterday my car broke down on Questa grade outside San Luis we called AAA for a tow and collage towing came to my puppy and my rescue!! Michael my tow driver was amazing! He was exceptionally professional, kind and customer service is a 10! And extra understanding and welcoming to my puppy and I.

As a woman it is a scaring thing sitting on the side of the highway with a puppy and expecting someone who you know nothing about to pick you up and drive you home. I live in Santa Barbara and was 115 miles away and had to sit in a truck with this stranger. Michael made me and my puppy feel safe and comfortable and not for one moment felt fear for my safety.

The lady whom I don't remember her name kept calling and checking in on me while We waited and only waited for a long period because of a unfortunate 4 car reck that stopped traffic for many hours. She made sure we were safe and double checked on where we were. Collage towing and the employees need to be recognized for their amazing customer service!!

Great customer service... Answered the phone right away, sent a truck (literally) down the street. All I needed was air in a tire to get me to a tire store. Solid service.

We had a flat tire on 101 in the middle of a very foggy rainstorm. Turned off on stagecoach road. Totally deserted. After a very annoying AAA call we waited. Tow driver called and couldn't find us as operator hadn't told him we turned off 101. He assured us not to worry and found us quickly. He was so nice and efficient. He then told us where to buy a new tire and asked if he could do anything more. Great service

Dead battery in a city that I know no one.

They showed up fast, and all considered didn't gouge me for more than what was fair.

I definitely stored their number in my phone.

TJ came out when I locked my keys in the car. He literally had them in my hand in about a minute and a half. Kinda jealous at his mad skills!

Really professional and had everything done in approximately 7 min. Would highly recommend them to anyone!!

John is literally a saint. My tire blew on the southbound 101 and I had 1% battery on my phone. He showed up quickly, let me charge my phone in his truck, and called multiple tire places to make sure I could get a new tire before continuing the drive back to Santa Barbara. He even escorted me to the tire place since I couldn't map it on my phone. Will definitely call them if I ever need their services!

Needed to get my truck to repair and Shaun did a great job for AAA service

Ed Muraski Via Google

Great to work with! John came and tried everything he could think of to get our car running..unfortunately he wasn't able to and had to tow it but he was very friendly and turned a frustrating event into a pleasant experience. He even called us back to let us know our car had been dropped off and keys in the service drop box of the dealership. Honestly, hoping I won't ever need two service again but if I do, I will definitely call them!

Excellent towing company. They were on the spot putting a misbehaving classic car up on their flatbed and getting it home. Freddie was a pro hooking up the car and driving it safely. Many thanks!

Within 15 minutes of calling College Towing this morning there was someone, Cliff, in my driveway. My car was not starting and wouldn't even make a sound when I turned the key, and since jump starting it did nothing I figured it was time to have it towed in. Cliff looked at my battery, carefully cleaned away some corrosion and tightened the connections and the engine roared to life.

Many towing companies would have been content with rigging up my little car, towing it to the repair shop one mile away and handing me the bill. Twenty minutes and $45 later my car was up and running! I greatly appreciate that the time was taken to evaluate the problem, especially when it turned out to be such a quick fix.

I HIGHLY recommend this company! My car broke down near SLO and we were not from the area so we randomly called this company. They estimated 20 minutes to get there, but he arrived in less than 10 minutes and this was the best towing experience I could've asked for. Larry was super kind and helpful, he recommended a shop and took care of the entire thing, and it made what could've been an extreme headache something so much simpler. Good job guys!

These guys came out after I got a flat and didn't have a tire iron on me. They were quick and got to my car in about 15 minutes. Robert threw the spare on for me and I was on my way. Great customer service and super fast , Thanks guys!

Brandon L., San Luis Obispo, CA Via Yelp

These guys are awesome! Affordable and very friendly. I've had to use them 3 times in the past month and every time they're great.

I had to get a tow today because I broke down. When the driver came pick up my car, he was actually asking me questions about what was wrong with it and seemed interested in trying to help me fix my car. He had me crank it so he could hear the noise it was making. How nice is that? I mean, what if he actually had me try something that fixed my issue and got me running so that I didn't even need a tow? Most places seem like they're just about the money, but these guys are genuinely nice. A+

Mike is the BEST!!!

Not only super quick but courteous too. My car died in front of my grandson's elementary school and College Towing was there within less than 10 minutes to give us a jump. I had a feeling that my car battery was not going to keep the charge so Mike offered to follow us to make sure we made it, what a nice guy! Keep him because he's a gem!

I was with my boyfriend at a hotel in San Luis Obispo when his car broke down. We called for a tow truck through AAA and one from College Towing arrived promptly. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, told us that the car's transmission was the problem and towed us to their shop to wait for a truck with a flatbed.

The wait was a little long, but our tow truck guy was so personable that it wasn't a big deal. We ended up being towed from San Luis Obispo back to Oakland, and that's quite a ways away.

These guys really know how to treat their customers! Highly recommended.

My car broke down last night and needed to be towed for the second time in a month, so needless to say I was a bit frustrated. I called AAA and Zack from College Towing showed up within the hour and gave me first class service from start to finish.

I am a nanny and had the 6 year old little boy with me whom I care for, and he was very exited to ride in a huge tow-truck for the first time. Zack was very friendly and made it a fun and enjoyable experience for both the child and myself. I never thought I'd say having my car break-down would be a positive experience, but Zack's genuine personality and sense of humor made me forget about my car troubles, for which I can't thank him enough.

I scheduled an appointment, and they were a little late. However, they took care of my car's problem in like 3 minutes after they got here, saving me the trip and money to visit a Honda dealership. Bobbie and his assistant were both super friendly, so overall a great experience! Highly recommended!

Shu Hua H., Oakland, CA Via Yelp

Awesome guys came to help tow our truck! Very friendly, helpful and knowledgable! Recommend them HIGHLY!!

These guys rocked it. I had locked my keys inside my vehicle. When I called my husband , who was out of town, he said, that they'd never be able to get into your vehicle because It has an automatic locking mechanism. Well, these guys were incredible (and a bit brilliant) because they were able to get around the rapid fire self-locking mechanism. Kudos to Neil and John. You guys made my day. And you were funny to boot!

Jennifer S., Lakeport, CA Via Yelp

I have a BMW M3 which requires a little more attention when it comes to towing due to it's lower ground effects and all. It's generally recommended to tow these things on a flat bed trailer, too. Well a young guy named Zack shows up and this guy takes care of my car as if it was his own.

He knew exactly what to do to get the car on the trailer properly (using the screw in eyelet tow hook in the front bumper) to winch the car up on the trailer, to using wood blocks to get it off the trailer so that the front spoiler wouldn't rub against the trailer or ground as it rolled off.

The guys was polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. First class service!

Jen G., Paso Robles, CA Via Yelp

Extremely fast and painless (the driver beat me to where I left my truck). Driver worked around my forgetting the keys and even braved the vintage '79 three-speed transmission to pull my truck into my carport once we made it home.

I use AAA for all my towing and auto needs. I live in San Luis Obispo so AAA sent out College towing and a flatbed tow truck with a driver named Ken. Ken arrived within 15min asked me what was wrong so I told him, he took one look at my engine and heard me try to start the car (which wasn't working) he pulled out a few tools and tried a few things and within no time he had my car running again. It really goes to show how much Ken and College towing goes that extra mile to ensure that the, very knowledgeable, drivers will try everything they can to get you back on the road before they have to tow your car to a shop. Thanks College Towing and thank you KEN!

We were starting our vacation when our truck & trailer broke down 4 hrs of our 6 to our destination. Michael is the best! He saved us twice in one day and went out of his way by making us (2 moms & 2 teen girls) feel like family. We couldn't find a rental car anywhere around nor did the dealership have a loaner car. Michael came back and towed our trailer to our destination. It could have been a disastrous day. Thank you Michael for your services!

Denise B., Sonoma, CA Via Yelp

We had the best experience with college towing, Mike was a gentle man and very professional. He towed us home almost 200 miles from Pismo beach to Aromas ca. Couldn't have asked for a safer driver, he was so carful when unloading our car. We highly recommend this towing company!!! Mike is the best !!!

Amanda B., Watsonville, CA Via Yelp

Our town truck driver was Shawn. He was polite, courteous, professional, and very reassuring. He showed up twenty minutes earlier than the predicted AAA time. Picked up my broken down van in the middle of the parking lot with ease and dropped it off neatly at the auto shop.

Katelyn S., Arroyo Grande, CA Via Yelp

I just received the most polite professional service from Cale I had a flat tire on 101 north bound called ACSC for assistance they dispatched College Towing. Cale arrived with a smile and had my car towed home within a very short period of time. If you need a tow call College Towing

Shana M., Arroyo Grande, CA Via Yelp

College Towing has helped me out more than a few times. (Key locked in car, bad battery, tow to dealer) and today they helped out once again! Thanks to AAA service and College Towing South they have been always on point, arrived each time in less than 15 min.!! and the driver (Steve) was great...filling my tire with air and helped me contact a tire station (Medinas) not more than 2 miles away...they fixed the tire in a short time period. I just want to give College Towing a shout out and kudos for having such a great staff!! Thanks Steve!!
